despite that country's still facing a turbulent future this after an escalation of violence over the last two days with three palestinians killed fifteen wounded tel aviv has apologized person billion casualties saying it was targeting militants. retreat up next with sports stay with us here on our. polo the sports are not to good to have again the star and first our top stories. back to the gym and bear plays held their official training sessions after the end of the lockout. braun's a russian ladies' team denmark in style to complete the podium if european calling championship here in moscow. and a canadian in qatar start when they tie up with
a man who is more than left his mark on the kontinental hockey eyes haven't done. so let's start with biathlon where russia has claimed silver in the women's pursuit race at the second stage of the world cup in whole foods in austria after the final shooting range there were three athletes mundelein annoying. and resigned to the who all left it at approximately the same time the fate of the race was decided on the last one hundred meters of the track. by only three tenths of a second the finish line germany's neuer finished third three seconds behind the winner. curling now way sweden lost twice at the european championships in the russian capital as norway called out a narrow seven six victory in the men's final while the swedish women's team suffered a heavy two eight defeat by scotland russian ladies won bronze is that in
a confident way the two thousand and six european russia lost the opening but found their stride later on lading by four points midway through denmark didn't come close to leveling matters in the penultimate and but the russians showed their dominance by controlling the last one five male living the final score thirteen seven and place wrapped up that was only the. country is second over piece of silverware. just on the bill of a guy i don't think the game turned out to be very tight were confident how to charge it stayed focused and concentrated on the result and you'll be and so very happy to win the bronze medal. e.c.m. only denmark is a very experienced team and we expected them to fight until the end we kept in mind that we should battle even if the equalized we followed the plan and we won but as the game. now one man has played many times against all the cato teams coming down
one is this focus of our profile series this week the canadian captain of various our sonar has been busy blazing a trail in the league since he first arrived in kazakhstan in two thousand and eight but what other none has more. this man's name is karen delman he's a canadian gunner in europe's strongest league the get a chill the three year old defenseman captains bristol not easily beat many forwards in scoring goals and points he was born of all three all star games and will make his fourth at the end of january twentieth twelve having joined because of side in two thousand and eight down was quick to stand with his name in the league the canadiens twenty goals and assists within his dad this isn't breaking the soviet and russian hockey record of scoring for his position and bringing him
the chills best defense will award definitely out there for my first year when i didn't have a contract during that first year few teams reached out to my agents and i think a few team reaches to reach out very soon and try to get me to leave. the year i had there the french are. grown on the team and the management was a tough tough decision i couldn't leave and then they made me captain and all that just everything went well and it fit well and it was carter water and really i really enjoyed. moving to the capital of extent just like a leap in the dark this was a tough decision to make for doma and his family however it didn't take them long to find out what looks like. the city which was named the best in the c.i.s. by the international acidly of capitals and cities in twenty seven i think one of the biggest things that i'm sure more most north americans all agree with me is
when you hear russia are like kazakstan or whatever you hear horror stories like it's really rough mean and. so when we got over here when i got over here it's nothing like that everyone is friendly everyone tries to help you know and it's just the same as back on israel while coming it was really modern more really like back home it was easy to adjust and then i just start stays on the phone until there was an icing and i went from there and now we love it here hopefully we can stay here for the rest of my career. in new environment is always a challenge but the sporting continued the issue is even more important it often takes a while for love the american players moving to europe to get used to bigger ice rinks where we're given delmon is quite a different story the canadian clear is a real potential game european ice hockey that is the same i mean in the end the only difference is that the service is
a little bit there. so you don't get the physical this is not it's not as there as it is back home in the n.h.l. the small i service you know going to his russian i think that's that's not really what help my game but it's the bigger i serviced it because i like to read plays and jump in the open i saw that i was a big difference for us to mix success over here them and is one of seven north americans with forcing the no leopards some extra blood which often gives them the edge that's the way boris killed their pool in a purely hockey way north american style europeans and it's all it's hockey and everyone yeah dog gels together there's europeans over there russians and everyone there all over the place so hockey is a salmon and it's. just we like to bring that aggressive grit body checking in and it intimidates players some players but for most of the most bird i mean it's hockey you know you're going to get hurt. you know you can't be afraid to. look.
bertie. finally back on court for their first official practice only six plays turned out for the miami hates training session james went wait. for the haters all to nothing less than a target that will help them forget their loss to dollars and six games last spring but for now they're simply glad to be back to work. the problem is that you know the smell of joe you know him like to hit the ball about you know look at another record go down and work with a coach you work with you miss becomes a family and you know we just have you know we've been in the meantime the celtics also go back to practice the ball someplace you know that could be their last chance at the championship with their current lineup kevin garnett and i are in the
final year of their contract. was probably most likely our last shot. now and then i was on this one about this so this is a. team that looks at ourselves we have to do it this year because this is our only you we can do. it you may never be in this position again as a player or as a coach. to english premier league title contenders chelsea and manchester city preparing for monday's had to head fixture on driver last polish whose men are countless sitting ten points behind their big spending rivals believes that his side has no right to give that coming much away. i think the result that they want to reach is a room to the little blue for getting the three points. duly will come out to do almost with the assurance that. is at least we
want the most in the room over to go off now we're. told to lead into the final round of the dubai world championship this short under seventy in the third round on saturday to total fourteen under two hundred two. luke donald is currently fourth at two hundred six after shooting a sixty six the englishman is trying to become the first goal for to win both american and european money titles having won the american one. must now be troll remarkable in the race to dubai to double. eight at eight after struggling seven to one. and finally surfing where the old master kelly slater has made the how and pipeline lost his quarterfinals in the upcoming round who will meet new talent john doerr florence who is twenty years younger than his compatriot the american pair were also drawn together in the not of the nation fourth round on
friday what florence got the better of a veteran rival but it was her way and marcus heckman who slater had to be to make the quarters after enduring some parts and a couple of broken boards thirty nine year old reigning world champion managed to write his way to that third round victory so the most thrilling contest of the coming round will see whether youth or experience is going to take the edge. i see john john's got to be to get three tenths in three needs. you know he's he's you know he's probably the best guy all around out here now he search every day lives right there and and so you know if i were to lose to my lost him earlier but you know it's kind of a nomination thing but if i were to lose him tomorrow it's it's definitely no shame i mean i think he's better than basically everyone else in this contest. what so from a and the sports sex for now well that is next stay with us.
